Contracting drone operators with pre-set flight plans

Recommended Posts

I am engaged in a project that requires processing a large area of drone imagery, but there are too many flight plans to complete by myself. I am considering contracting out this work to some local drone operators, and I am wondering what rate I should offer to pay them that would be fair. I have defined the flight plans to be used, and they can be loaded directly into either Litchi or the DJI app and be used to autonomously fly the routes.

I am aware that common pricing for drone services is $100 (for < 1 hour job). The flight plans I have created are all ~20 minutes. All the drone operator would need to do is upload the flight plan to their drone, then send me the video afterward.

Can I please have some input as to what is a fair market rate for this kind of drone work? Thanks!
